All Rohr's Worries Are Over: Leicester Ace Ndidi Starts Swimming, Gym WorkPublished: May 16, 2018
Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi is pushing himself to be fit even ahead of schedule after he was named in Nigeria's 30-man provisional roster for the World Cup.
The hamstring injury the defensive midfielder suffered against Crystal Palace on April 28 is expected to keep him out of action for six weeks but he has stepped up his recovery programme in the swimming pool and the gym.
The Nigerian Federation and coaching staff are amazed at the way the energetic midfielder is recuperating very fast, that is better than they earlier thought.
''Ndidi is doing very, very well. He is recovering very well, all the worries are over now,'' a top source told allnigeriasoccer.com.
''It is confirmed that he will go to the World Cup. He has not started training on the pitch but he's doing treadmill workouts and swimming exercises.''
Gernot Rohr has identified Ndidi as one of the key players in the Super Eagles squad since he was appointed coach, and handed him starts in all the Super Eagles 2018 World Cup qualifiers apart from the game against Algeria in Uyo.
